My pen arrived today and I've already fallen totally in love! The nib of this
pen is most definately finer than my Lamy extra-fine nib. It writes amazingly
smooth for such a fine nib. I will be using Noodlers Ink in it as soon as I use
the ink that is in the cartridge that came with the pen, but that's just because
I am a Noodlers Ink junkie. I LOVE the way this pen looks, feels in my hand and
writes. Thank you so much!!!!!
For anyone looking for an alternative to using this ink without the pens that
came with the bottle I have one for you.
I am using this ink in a Platinum Preppy 03 fountain pen using a cartridge to
hold the ink. It is working very well and I don't have to be nervous about
accidently unscrewing the body of the pen and dumping the ink all over the
place. I use a syringe to fill the cartridge and so far I have had wonderful
success with it.
I did have the cap of the Preppy pen that came with my bottle crack and that
caused my pen to not be able to maintain the nib moisture level and it was
extremely hard to keep writing. Since discovering the crack and swaping caps
with the 2nd pen that came in the box there have been no issues and these pens
write as soon as the nib touches the paper without fail.
Still LOVE this color, I hope they keep making it!
If you are looking for a rich green that is toward the olive end of the spectrum
this is your ink. The best description I've seen of this color is dark moss
evergreen. The color sample definately does not do justice at all to this
beautiful color. I am using it in a Lamy Al-Star extra fine nib pen and
absolutely love the color and the feel of this ink.
I got this pen recently when I ordered some Noodler's Ink. I thought I'd give
one of these a try since it was so reasonably priced for a fountain pen I could
I have to say that I am totally amazed by it's quality, both the body of the pen
and the extra-fine nib. I have never seen a nib that writes so fine a line. Now
I can't wait until I empty this cartridge that came with the pen so that I can
put some of the Noodler's Ink I bought in to try those colors out.
This is absolutely wonderful ink! It arrived in three days all the way across
the US which was a total surprise to me. Then when I filled the included
fountain pen and started using it I was once again in total shock. The ink looks
vaguely purple-blue as it goes onto the paper but the dries quickly to a deep
purple that has a different look than the purple with redish tinges you usually
get. It dries quickly which is nice and has worked well on every type of paper
I've used it on which have ranged from my journal to recycled notebook paper. I
was a little skeptical about the fountain pen when I first saw it but it writes
with a very nice fine line. The only thing I had to work out was getting the pen
started the first few times I used it, but now a few days into using it and it
starts immediately and consistently.
In short, order this ink. You won't regret it. The color is beautiful and
unique. I sincerely hope that Noodler's Ink can make more of this color and that
Jet Pens continues to carry Noodler's Inks the way they are now. They have the
best selection of anywhere I have been able to find.
